Ever use this stuff? It's like putty but it's silicon so it dries sort of hard-ish and can be used to repair and hack all kinds of things. If you look in the gallery on their website you'll see lots of incredible projects.

Here are a few of mine. I don't work for them, I just love the stuff Smiley.

Turn and "L" fridge magnet into an "I" (I cut part off with a carpet knife then filled it in with red sugru.


Fix a ripped shower curtain ring.


Heat and slip-proof metal camping dishes, works to personalize sets too Cheesy!


Fix an uncomfortable knife grip.


Mend a broken clasp on your kid's arts and crafts lap table/storage unit.


Make a dollar store paper towel holder into a handy canning jar ring stash tower (these things were EVERYWHERE before I did this!).

Yup, it sure is amazing stuff. It lasts about 6 months in the package, longer if you keep it in the fridge. You have to use it up as soon as you open one of the small pouches 'cause it dries in 24 hrs so I stockpile projects that need fixing or hacking then order some up and go to town! My brother put "bumpers" on his smart phone to keep it from jiggling off the table when it rang/vibrated. You can texturize it by pressing a bit of screen or whatnot into it which is very cool.
I put button feet on a soap dish, forgot to add a picture of that. Oh, and we stuck lego blocks to plastic dinos and cars for fun, and fixed a broken kid ring. It's awesome stuff.
